We were up at 5:45 and left a little after 6:30 to make sure we got to the vets at 7:30. We got there about 7:20 and could see people inside, so I called and they came out and got the pets and we headed back home and with a stop at McD's for some egg mcmuffins we were back home by 8:30. The roads were very clear and dry, so unless dh objects for some stupid reason (like it's a macho thing) I'm going to just drive myself back in this afternoon to get the pets. I need to first stop at my mom's and check in on her, refill one of the meds in her machine, and (maybe, LOL) find her cell phone. The vet had said maybe around 3pm ready to pick up, so I'll probably head back around 1:30, get to mom's at 2:15 and just hang out there until the vet calls. As long as they are picked up by 5pm, I can get them anytime they are ready. While it's cold out this morning (it was 17 on the drive in) it's supposed to be sunny and warm up to 45 this afternoon.
No one can seem to pronounce my kitty's name, LOL. Even my dd had trouble at first, until she heard us say it. Amos - "A (long A sound) -mus". Not A (short A sound) mose (long o sound). LOL. Like Famous Amos cookies, LOL. The vet phone receptionist couldn't say it right and the vet tech couldn't say it right.
It's hard for dh to get up that early and be ready to go in a short time period. His body just doesn't get working for a good hour or more. I'm hoping he'll be more than happy to stay home this afternoon and let me go pick them up. It's quiet here with no pets.
At least today is a work holiday, too. I can relax now until I have to go back in about 4 1/2 hours. My luck they will call at noon and say they are ready, while I'm still here at home. Oh well, like I said I have until 5 to get them, she said, so I won't need to rush to pick them up. I would just prefer to get back home before 5, before it starts getting dark, of course.
I just had a piece of toast before we left this morning. No coffee, no instant breakfast drink....cuz I would have to go to the bathroom before we got back home! DH, who due to his prostate has to pee literally every 20 minutes, finally listened to me and drank nothing this morning and didn't take anything with him to drink on the drive as he always does. What do ya know - he actually made it round trip without having to stop somewhere. Sometimes I am right.
I got home and had my coffee. It didn't wake me up. I think I could fall asleep easily right now.The vet tech said they would also call after the procedures were done, to let us know the animals are ok, and then call later when they are out of anesthesia and can be picked up.
